Choreographer-filmmaker Remo D’Souza is all set to roll out his next dance flick (his fourth directorial project) with Varun Dhawan in the lead. Ever since its announcement, there were rumours doing the rounds that Katrina Kaif, who has shown her exemplary dancing skills in songs like Sheila Ki Jawani, Chikni Chameli and Kaala Chashma among others, has been roped in to play the female lead in the film. However, the duo has been confirmed for Remo D’Souza’s dance-based film, which will be produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series.

Yes, you read that right. Katrina Kaif and Varun Dhawan have been finalised for Remo D’Souza’s next. In a statement to Bombay Times, Producer Bhushan Kumar, Chairman and MD, T-Series, said, “Dance and music go hand-in-hand. As a brand synonymous with music, it seemed natural for us to produce India’s biggest dance film. Having a committed director like Remo, who is passionate about dance and has mastered several dance forms, is amazing. Varun is a born entertainer and the audience loves his dance moves. Katrina is talented and hard-working — she also has a mesmerising presence. Also Read - Shah Rukh Khan's Daughter Suhana Khan's Pout Game is Unmissable, Video goes Viral | Watch
Speaking of the film and the cast, filmmaker Remo added, “It’s just appropriate that a film about music and dance is produced by the man heading one of the biggest music companies in Bollywood. With this movie, I will get to direct Varun, who is among the best dancers in the film industry today, and Katrina, who has proved her versatility as a dancer.” The film is expected to go on floors later this year and is slated to release on November 8, 2019.

Sharing her excitement, Katrina said, “I am excited to be joining Remo’s vision. Varun’s passion is wonderful; he works tirelessly to create magic on screen. And, Bhushan Kumar, with his understanding of market dynamics as a producer, will ensure this turns out to be the most talked-about film of 2019. I can’t wait to start this journey.”
On the professional front, Varun Dhawan will next be seen in Shoojit Sircar’s October and YRF’s Sui Dhaaga. Both films are slated to release in 2018. Meanwhile, Katrina Kaif is also on a roll with two biggies, Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Zero’ and Aamir Khan’s ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ and this one surely can be termed the third one.
